Dirigo Labs Accelerator

Every successful startup story starts with great people.

Magic happens when you start with great people and add world-class mentorship, a topically relevant curriculum, capital investment, and a coworking space where teams can innovate and grow.

That’s why twice a year, we bring the best and brightest entrepreneurs together to join one of our 12-week accelerator cohorts in the fall and winter. Apply to our accelerator program.

Once you are selected to join a cohort, you will be matched with a curated temporary board of advisors from our mentor pool who fit your startup’s unique needs. During the 12-week accelerator, you will have a home base at Bricks Coworking & Innovation Space and will participate with your cohort in a targeted curriculum covering a wide range of meaningful content, including customer discovery methodologies, revenue models, product development, AI and Blockchain, fundraising, and pitch refinement.

Additionally, you may sign up for office hours with our entrepreneur-in-residence, join a “Beers with Peers” brainstorming session, attend ecosystem networking events, and compete for a cash prize in our Demo Day pitch event.

Each cohort member will exit the accelerator with connections to founders, advisors, and service providers, a solid knowledge base, a flexible and discounted coworking space membership, and guaranteed investor pitch opportunities.

Wondering what we’re looking for? Generally, the big three:

Coachability

Are you receptive to advice and willing to learn?

Viability

Do you have a strong business model and team?

Scalability

Does your startup have potential for rapid growth and revenue generation?

We’d also like to see startups who have achieved one of the following milestones:

Don’t meet those criteria but still think your venture is compelling?

Apply anyway; chances are, we will think so too!

Applications for our next cohort will open this summer.
